Distinguished Guest Series Celebrates 70th Season with Stars
Tickets Available Now


KOHLER, Wis. – August 19, 2013 – Seventy years of world-class performances in Kohler will be celebrated in 2013 and 2014 by the Kohler Foundation’s Distinguished Guest Series, which was begun by the Kohler Women’s Club in 1944.  Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., whose mother ran the series until her death in 1953, says that the upcoming season represents the kind of performances she would have loved.  “When I reflect upon the rich history of the Distinguished Guest Series, and the legacy of artistic and cultural exploration left by my mother, I am delighted that the Kohler Foundation is bringing such a diverse repertoire of masterful artists to Kohler for the 70th Anniversary of the Series.”

 In its 2013-2014 Season, the Distinguished Guest Series once again presents the best of the best.

Air Supply
Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, 8 p.m.

Yes, THAT Air Supply. Where were you when you first heard the trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock's soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell's simple yet majestic songs? With seven top-five singles, including “Lost in Love”, “Sweet Dreams”, and “Making Love Out of Nothing At All”, Air Supply equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. They continue to create new music and delight their enthusiastic and dedicated fans around the world.

Five Guys Named Moe
Friday, February 14, 2014, 8 p.m.

Winner of two Laurence Olivier Awards and nominated for two Tony Awards, Five Guys Named Moe is a high-energy Broadway hit. Five guys (named Moe) leap out of a jukebox and sing the 1930’s songs of Louis Jordan to help down-on-his-luck Nomax turn his life around. The five guys will have you singing and dancing along all night.

Itzhak Perlman in Concert with Rohan DeSilva on Piano
Saturday, April 5, 2014, 8 p.m.

Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. Beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent, he is treasured by audiences throughout the world who respond not only to his remarkable artistry, but also to the irrepressible joy with which he makes music. Mr. Perlman will conduct a special public Question and Answer session following his performance.
